Summary:

The subject site is designated Residential Urban (RU) on the Future Land Use Map (FLUM) and is zoned R-4 (2.71 acres), RPD (3.57 acres) and RMH (0.55 acre). The site consists of 27 separate parcels (see attached list) that are currently vacant.

The owners wish to develop the site with multifamily residential. They are proposing to limit the type of development on the northernmost 2.2-acre portion of the site via the Conditional Overlay to the following uses: single-family detached, single-family attached (townhomes), duplex or triplex. This 2.2-acre portion is adjacent to an established single-family detached development consisting of 11 homes. The Conditional Overlay would help enhance compatibility with this area. The remaining 4.7 acres will not have the Conditional Overlay limitation and could be developed with any of the allowable uses in the RM zoning district, including condominium/apartment buildings. The requested RM and RM-CO districts permit a variety of single-family and multifamily residential uses with varying lot sizes that allow for greater flexibility with design of a subdivision and the potential for increased open space. Importantly, the Residential Urban Future Land Use category, which allows up to 7.5 residential units per acre, is not proposed for amendment. Therefore, there would be no change in the maximum permitted residential density, which could potentially allow up to 53 residential units on the subject site based on its developable acreage and subject to site plan review.

The subject site is adjacent to a small area of businesses on the west; single-family homes on the north; a townhome development under construction, a Pinellas County owned property and single-family homes on the east; and single-family homes and a Pinellas County owned property on the south. The development pattern in the surrounding area is mostly low to medium density residential with a mixture of single-family detached, townhomes and mobile home residential uses with a small area of marine oriented businesses. This current case would continue this trend and can be considered consistent and compatible with the surrounding uses.

Staff is of the opinion that the proposed RM and RM-CO zoning amendments are appropriate for the subject site. The maximum allowable residential density is not increasing based on no changes to the FLUM. The proposal is consistent with the Pinellas County Comprehensive Plan and is appropriate for this location.
